I have been battling shoulder shit for a couple weeks (again) because I am a stubborn asshole who keeps trying to bring my hands in while squatting knowing full well its going to feel like burning pokers in my shoulder when I bench.
I did that a couple weeks ago and I am still paying the price for it on bench day.
The good is the pain is going away, the bad is that today it was still there. I was able to go a little heavier before it set in and I stopped the weight there instead of keeping it going until I had to shut the whole workout down.
Look at me being all smart and shit.
